        A group of local college students were protesting a proposed natural gas pipeline on the steps of the state capital Friday.

        The group Student Environmental Action Coalition says they're against the proposed pipeline that would carry thousands of barrels of liquid natural gas from the northern Midwest and Northeast down to the Gulf Coast.

        The group says they're concerned about what effect a leakage would have in the local environment.

        Governor Beshear says lawmakers will look into the proposed pipeline issue when they returned to Frankfort for the annual session at the beginning of 2014.

Thank you for the story. I would like to clarify that the Bluegrass Pipeline will NOT provide natural gas or liquid natural gas. The company frequently uses these terms in their literature and public statements, but this line is for fracked NGLs, which are not the same as the natural gas we use to heat our homes. NGLs are primarily used in manufacturing and in plastics production. This line is not a utility, the company's history is riddled with violations and accidents, and it claims it has the right to use eminent domain to take Kentuckians' land rights--even though it is a private company and not a utility.
